The National Broadband Network (NBN) Panel of Experts has released its report into the NBN market and regulation. The report looks at the overall structure and regulatory framework for Australia's future broadband market and the role of NBN Co. The Australian Government is considering the report and its recommendations.

The report recommends:

  • creating a new regulator for managing access to telecommunications networks across Australia.
